To celebrate Taste of Kildare, Kildare Fáilte are giving one lucky winner the chance to dine out for a year in 12 of Kildare’s best restaurants. To enter this fantastic competition, visit here.
Commenting on this year’s festival, Rachel said: “When I was asked if I would attend the first Taste of Kildare, I had no hesitation in saying yes. Kildare is continually developing and is turning into such a vibrant hub for visitors.”
Rachel added: “This is such a great food festival as it provides an opportunity to showcase the superb fresh Kildare farm to fork food offering, as well as providing a springboard to the public arena for new local talent.”
During the festival, guests can enjoy craft beer and wine tastings. Live music and entertainment will be provided by acclaimed singer-songwriter Paddy Casey, as well as a live jazz band and DJ.
The K Club will be hosting a gala lunch in their Legacy Suite for 300 guests that will feature local suppliers and producers. Diners will enjoy an exclusive afternoon of fine dining.
